Zen Japan


10 Days, 9 Nights

Zen Buddhism is pervasive in Japan. From the magnificent temples to the many meditative arts, Zen’s influence is everywhere.  This vacation offers not only an itinerary that covers the highlights of Japan, but also shines a spotlight on this simple yet powerful religion of meditation and intuition. Starting in Tokyo, the itinerary moves to the mountain town of Yudanaka and a visit to the adorable Snow Monkeys who keep warm by bathing in the local hot springs.  Time in Kyoto with its many temples, shrines and pagodas is followed by an overnight at a Japanese monastery on Mt Koya.  The trip ends in Osaka, a fun, lively city known for its street food.
